Tall & Skinny...I am not!

Hello friends - it feels like Monday to me due to the holiday - that means I'll be confused all week long. :0 But it was a GREAT weekend - hope yours was too!

This week at Mojo Monday, Julee is going all Tall and Skinny...which I am not; always wanted to be, but much more short and squat - HA!

I had so much fun making this little shaker card; I used the WPlus9 Unforgettable stamp and die set and the Polaroid die set from MFT. I colored the elephant with Copics using the die to cut him out and placed him peeking through the polaroid; then I stamped the party hat on designer paper and added some shading with Copics. I stamped just the balloon on both white card stock and designer paper to give it a bit more thickness then tied it to the party hat with hemp twine. I added a layer of vellum behind the polaroid, some foam adhesive, some sequins and then a fun chevron patterned paper.

The overall card is 3.5" by 5.5"; more patterned paper and glitter paper finish off the front along with some washi tape. And of course, I waited to stamp my sentiment till the polaroid was finished...yes, that DID NOT go well - *groan* - so I added a little orange flag to hide the oopsie! :D

Thanks for stopping by; hope you have a great week!
